ALTERNATE ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
Looking for comfortable alternate festival accommodation with a touch of adventure? Here are some ideas!
🚐 Perhaps hiring a motorhome or van from Apollo Motorhome Holidays https://www.apollocamper.com/ and parking it up at one of the local caravan parks for a true country experience is up your alley. Just think that’s your fuel and accommodation all rolled into one!!
🚐 Don’t own your own caravan but keen for the idea? Then look into Camplify a great site that has caravans and motorhomes for hire, with many located right here on the Southern Downs. On the flip side to this if you are a local with caravan just sitting around not being used during Jumpers and Jazz you could look into registering with Camplify and earning towards your own holiday!

🏘 Southern Downs and Granite Belt website also has a great range of accommodation options from caravan parks, hotels/motels and even some Glamping in the beautiful Goomburra area.
Warwick Showgrounds and Killarney Show & Recreation Grounds also have lots of space for you to stay in your “home away from home” with all essential facilities available.
🏘 If thinking outside the box is more your thing, perhaps you can look at https://www.hipcamp.com/en-AU
🚐 Another HOT TIP is to widen your location search on standard booking sites. It is just a short and beautiful rural drive to Toowoomba and the amazing team at https://www.shuttlebugtbar.com.au/ are doing trips for all the key events throughout the festival.
